Making health care more easily available

  • e new law makes health care more easily available by:

  • Covering children. Insurance companies can no longer deny coverage for pre-existing conditions such as diabetes or cancer in children and, starting in 2014, in adults.

  • Ending rescissions. Insurance plans can no longer rescind, or stop, coverage because a patient gets sick.

  • Creating health benet exchanges in every state.

    • ese exchanges will let people shop for insurance and compare health plans by quality and price.

  • Creating a health plan in every state to cover people with pre-existing conditions. ese plans apply to people with cancer or another pre-existing condition who have not had insurance for 6 months or more.

  • Guaranteeing coverage. No one will be denied coverage because of his or her medical history, a guarantee that is backed by the requirement that all Americans buy insurance.
